Justin Shearer (born Justin Shearer on December 9, 1980 in Louisville, Kentucky) is an American street car racer and television personality. After picking up the sport of street racing at the young age of 9, he has made a career out of his love for street racing. He moved from Kentucky to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1992, and has worked at a business called Midwest Street Cars for several years. His passion for street racing inspired Discovery Channel execs to create a reality program based on Justin, his fellow racing enthusiasts, and their street racing lifestyle titled Street Outlaws in 2013. Two years later, it has proved to be one of the network’s top shows. On November 14, Big Chief and his costar Brian “Chucky” Davis were involved in an intense car crash that left Justin with a broken collarbone and a crushed L2 and L3 in his back. He also lost his first car, a 1969 Pontiac LeMans he nicknamed The Crow, in the wreck, and paid tribute to it on his Instagram after informing fans that he was okay despite his injuries.
